Description

Three protests were held in front of the Capitol on Friday, Feb. 24, 2017. An early morning protest by the Juneau People for Peace and Justice was to show solidarity with immigrants and refugees, and calling for a town hall meeting with legislators.

A mid-morning protest was by Planned Parenthood supporters just before U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan’s speech to the Alaska Legislature.

A noon rally was held by a variety of groups also calling for legislators to meet in a town hall style setting so their concerns could be heard.
